Dr. Fuches has done both knee replacements for me. I was a total chicken about any surgery. I questioned him ALOT about his abilities and history, he smiled his sweet smile and answered me with a gentle spirit. He is very kind! My first surgery went so well and the healing was so complete that when I needed my 2nd knee done there was no thot other than Dr. Fuches. My husband & I feel that he just has a perfect heart for a surgeon. His staff is excellent! Emily has been helpful in every way!

I had both knees done with Dr. Fuchs and breezed through both recovery's. The SwiftPath method was a tremendous help in what to expect throughout the recovery process. He was thorough and did not push have surgery. I had been bone on bone for years and Dr. Fuchs stated "I am not going to tell you that you need surgery, you will tell me when you are ready to have surgery". We would highly recommend Dr. Fuchs, he is knowledgeable, extremely experienced and personable.

Dr Fuchs was very thorough in getting my shoulder condition diagnosed and treated. He gave a good timeline of what was going to occur and stuck to it. The whole experience was successful and I would highly recommend him for most any orthopedic issues

Dr. Fuchs preformed my knee replacement a year ago, April 27, 2015. I was entered in the Swiftpath Method, and I began physical therapy before the surgery. My surgery was at noon, on Monday, and I was in my own bed by 5:15PM that same day. The pain was minimum, until the meds wore off, about 40 hrs later. I was settled in before it really began to hurt. Dr Fuchs is easy to talk to. He takes time to answer any questions. I am playing golf and get usually get 10,000 steps on my FitBit

From the first moments in ProOrtho I felt like I was going to receive the treatment and support I needed. Everyone was pleasant and efficient from the first nurse I encountered till the last nurse to help me in recovery. Both my husband and myself were extremely pleased with Dr. Fuchs' knowledge and professionalism. We would recommend him and ProOrtho without hesitation. Thank you Dr. Fuchs and Lisa for helping me receive the expert treatment I needed.

Professional at all times. He talked to me about the surgery in lay men's terms. I was always able to get my questions answered by him or his wonderful assistant Lisa. His surgical staff were kind and caring throughout the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr.Fuchs to my friends and I have.

Dr. Fuchs replaced my right knee in December 2014 and my left knee in December 2015. He and his staff provided top-notch service from the first appointment all the way through physical therapy during recovery. He was thoroughly professional, upbeat, friendly, knowledgeable and a great listener from the first exploratory appointment all the way through rehab. I would never consider another orthopedic surgeon if I had any need for my orthopedic services. Yay, Dr. Fuchs!
